Cars that can easily drive half a million kilometers

One of the most important characteristics of the machine is its reliability. This is especially true of the domestic car market. Pro machines, the reliability of which is impressive – further in the review.

1. Toyota Land Cruiser Prado
The first generation of the car appeared back in 1987. Since then, the car has changed four generations, a huge number of engines and modifications. One thing remains unchanged – frame construction and insane reliability. Land Cruiser Prado is very popular in our country and is often found on the roads. Basically, he is loved for prestige and comfort.But somewhere in Africa, these machines are also very much, but for other reasons. The fact is that the local conditions of off-road, high dustiness and crazy temperature drops are far from every car can handle, and the Land Cruiser Prado manifests itself perfectly well in them, and this says a lot.

2. Honda Civic
For many years, the Civic has become one of the best selling models in the world, and is also a regular at various reliability tops. Indeed, in many respects precisely thanks to this model, Honda has made a name for itself. Starting from the fifth generation, a certain image of a car, which has excellent handling, interesting high-speed engines and high reliability, has been attached to the car. However, due to sports habits, many drivers drive a Civic pretty quickly, which significantly reduces the service life of cars. However, if the car is properly maintained, it will easily travel half a million kilometers.

3. Subaru Forester
The “Forester” from the Japanese brand is an excellent example of a simple reliable machine. It has hassle-free engines and gearboxes, the legendary symmetrical all-wheel drive Subaru and a durable suspension. Earlier Novate.ru already wrote about the legendary car engines. In the appendage to all this, the Forester rides perfectly, has a practical interior and a good cross-over, as for a crossover.

4. Toyota Camry
Another legend from Toyota. It is thanks to the model Camry “Toyota” has the image of the brand, which produces durable and reliable cars. Rustic technique and boring character Camry more than compensates for simplicity, reliability and comfort.

5. honda accord
“Classmate” Camry with a completely opposite character. If the Camry is a calm, comfortable sedan, created for driving with a driver, then the Honda Accord is a car primarily for the driver. She has bright resourceful engines, excellent handling and a dense suspension. Because of this, the Accord loses as much as Toyota in comfort, but takes its toll on driving pleasure. In general, both of these sedans are completely different cars that have something in common. Both cars have excellent reliability, for which we love them.

6. Renault Logan
Simple hardy design, the same engines and strongest suspension. Add to this the cheapness of spare parts coupled with the highest level of maintainability and get the perfect car for domestic roads.
